Police are seeking clues to the identity of the man who robbed a downtown Turlock bank Thursday afternoon.
The suspect got away with an undisclosed amount of cash and was last seen leaving the West America Bank at 241 W. Main St., on foot.
Around 2 p.m. Thursday the suspect entered the bank carrying a portfolio. He approached a teller and without saying a word, he opened the portfolio and displayed a note demanding cash, Turlock Police Capt. Michael Langston said.
